Affinity capture surfaces
Affinity capture is based on the specific binding of a tagged biomolecule to its receptor. The plate surface is therefore developed with one of the binding pair (the receptor) immobilized on its surface, while the tag is linked to a biomolecule either by chemical coupling or genetic engineering. The tagged biomolecule can then be captured on the plate surface with a high degree of specificity.
- Affinity tagged biomolecules have highly specific binding
- Reduced variability in molecular orientation
- Immobilizer surfaces improve S/N ratios
- Streptavidin biotin interaction can be exploited to immobilize a wide range of biomolecules (proteins, peptides, haptens, nucleic acids)
|Biomolecule||Surface type||Key features|
|Antibody-Binding Plates||Secondary antibody||Our antibody-coated platesare useful for binding assays when available antibodies are in low quantities, denatured, and become inactive upon direct adsorption to polystyrene plates.|
|Streptavidin- and NeutrAvidin-coated plates for binding biotinylated antibodies or probes for ELISA and other target-specific assays. Biotin-binding plates are ideal for applications when direct adsorption to polystyrene denatures antibodies or the target molecule.|
|GST-Binding Plates||Glutathione||Coated with intact glutathione (GSH) for use in capture and detection assays involving glutathione-S-transferase (GST) fusion proteins.|
|Nickel Chelate/Copper Chelate||Nickel and copper chelate–coated plates are ideal for analyzing polyhistidine-tagged fusion proteins by ELISA-based methods.|
